—gold has been struck in Buenos Aires, to the west



Roosters disregard
the sun, scream
at mountains that long
ago emptied their bosoms
to milk the earth. Now
and then the owl joins
in, whispers something
sorrowful and sweet,
but nothing can calm
those who know
mountains are held
together with more
than just stone.



A hummingbird flashes
onto wild lavender.
Its iridescent green
a mermaid scale
that blends
into nothing.


The glint catches
your eye
and you want it


like coins in the sand.
